Chilliwack Pool Closing

Chilliwack is known for high heats during the summer but when the wave of summer weather is over, pool owners are stuck with a big job on their hands. Shutting down a pool for the off-season isn’t as simple as throwing on winter covers and leaving it up to the elements. A proper Chilliwack pool closing protects swim spaces from cold temperatures, prolongs the lifespan of mechanisms and paves the way for easy openings in spring.

The best way to close your pool for the winter or long periods of disuse is to break treatments down into steps — but where to start? At the height of summer, pool care and water maintenance are a top priority for pool owners but when temperatures start to cool, it is easy to neglect swim spaces. Swimming pools are built tough but they aren’t invincible and freezing temperatures can cause serious damage. Instead of waiting for a worst-case scenario, call a Puddle Pro for your fall pool care and closings.

How You Can Benefit From Pool Closing Services

British Columbia is known for mild winters but it is always a good idea to winterize your pool. An overnight cold snap is enough to cause water to freeze inside vulnerable areas like return lines, around pool pumps and other unseen areas. It takes prolonged exposure to sub-zero temperatures for an entire pool basin to freeze over but other areas are more susceptible to the cold and that is where unexpected damage occurs. Luckily, our Puddle Pros are nearby to help protect your pool through the winter months.

Freezing temperatures make plastic brittle and frozen water can lead to burst pipes. When frozen, water is known to expand up to 9%. That might seem like a small number but it is enough to cause pipes to burst, causing flooding, water damage, rot, mold and more. In an inground pool, dropping the water levels and winterizing drain plugs can help to avoid this type of damage. When dealing with an above ground pool, air bags can help to prevent freezing. Taking time to blow out the lines and remove detachable components can limit the risk of frozen water inside plumbing and return lines.

Winter chemicals go a long way in preventing algae and avoiding unnecessary freezing in pool water. A simple test kit can help to identify issues with chlorine levels but they can’t help you close your swim space for the season. Closures are also a good time to perform visual inspections of areas like plumbing lines, cartridge filters or a sand filter.
